Phil Keaggy plays “Salvation Army Band”

Right now I’m fascinated with the ability that looping gives a solo musician to extend his reach. I came across this video which shows how Phil Keaggy uses looping to turn his solo guitar into a guitar army.

Though saying this might get me shunned in certain circles, I must admit that until I saw this video I had never heard Phil Keaggy play, and barely knew who he was. For the sake of my looping investigation it is almost a shame that Keaggy is a genius, because I don’t think it requires his level of genius to make effective use of the technology.

Also, I have to say that this is the first CCM song—really, the first—that I have ever enjoyed. Not that I’ve heard all that much CCM. But this one strikes me as completely genuine.
